How do you prefer yours?
Differential, the trickiest thing to get right in your setup. There’s who prefer it to be more open, less open, locked, making the car more oversteering, less oversteering, understeering, balanced, neutral. Who goes for better acceleration, who likes to have a more agile turn in and cornering. Then there is the need to adapt to different solutions like FWD, AWD and 4WD, or different racing surfaces, for rallying. It really is a difficult subject, and one that would require taking into consideration an infinite number of combinations and possibilities.
However, one thing is for certain, each (sim)racing driver has his own philosophy when it comes to tweaking the differential, and we thought it could be interesting to open up a container where to share all these stimulating ideas. Obviously, it is impossible to conclude which is the best configuration for your differential, because there simply isn’t any, being very much dependant on the driving style and the car driven. Still, a healthy discussion about which might work best for what and when might be a fascinating read. Moreover, if you happen to do track days or real racing, it would be interesting if you could share your experience, and eventual differences between setting up your diff in a sim and in an actual sports vehicle.
